The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are excited to announce the EPL Cup Final dates, which will determine if Milton Keynes or Peterborough become the Cup Champions of 2017.
Phantoms, and the rest of the 9 league teams, have been campaigning since the start of the season with the first home and away fixture of each team contributed points to the league and the cup table.
A few weeks ago the Semi Finals saw the MK Lightning eject the Hull Pirates from continuing into the final stage of the tournament and the Phantoms beating League toppers the Telford Tigers in a nail biting OT and Penalty shoot out. The victories setup the Final showdown between the two local rivals, in a home and away fixture to crown the winners.
The first leg of the Final will be held at Planet Ice Peterborough on Sunday 12th March, Face Off 5.30pm. This is in replacement to the Manchester Fixture that was due to be played on this date.
The return leg, and deciding fixture for the EPL Cup Winners of 2017, will be held on Saturday 18th March at Planet Ice Milton Keynes. The away fixture to Swindon Wildcats which was scheduled for the 18th March is now being played on Wednesday 15th February.
There is nothing like the atmosphere of a local derby, but a local derby and a cup final is going to be electric and we cannot wait!
Phantoms will be operating a coach to Milton Keynes on Saturday 18th March, so be sure to book your seats as early as possible as we are expecting seats to go quick. Please see Mandy Cox your travel Co-Ordinator at any Phantoms home fixture or email her on travel@Gophantoms.co.uk
Tickets for the home and away fixtures go on sale this Monday. You can call the Peterborough Box Office on 01733 260222 for the home fixture and reserve and pay for your tickets over the phone (this will save you the 10% booking fee, which applies online). The tickets will then be emailed to you. We advise buying your tickets in advance as the fixture is likely to be a sell-out.
We would like to remind all season ticket holders that the Cup and Play Off games are not a part of your season ticket, but your reserved seating is.
In celebration of reaching the Cup final, the Phantoms have launched a special edition Cup Final T-shirt which fans can purchase or order via HockeyDog at tonight’s fixture against the Guildford Flames (7pm Face Off).
The Tee’s are £12.50 for PhanForce members and £15.00 for non-members.
